Feeling Old

May has been a rough month....My oldest son graduated from nursing school. My oldest daughter got married and my twins each moved away from home for the summer. I certainly understand that those events are not all equal in importance or affect, but they were  biggies all the same.

I have been trying to write all month long...but the words and the emotions were a touch too raw. I was finally able to break through just a couple of days ago and this poem was the result. I am sure that there will be more to come...

and so here is the first.

Daddy’s and Daughters

I held you
In my arms
Blue eyes, blond curls
And laughter
We danced

You stood
On my feet
A smile
A mile wide
We danced

An open floor
By family and friends
In your wedding dress
We danced

The years
Took you away
Buy my heart
Holds you forever

And we dance.
